NameMapping additions are disappearing and dialog indicates I have unsaved changes
The attached video shows
- Me adding an entry to NameMapping.
- Clicking SAVE.
- Exiting TC.
- Opening TC.
- Getting a dialog about unsave changes.
- Observing mapping I created has disappeared.
Has anyone experienced this before?
Solved! Go to Solution.
That's what I have too but maybe I just got lucky. I was seeing it a month or so ago. I'm also working in a different project now so that's probably where my "luck" came in. I was going to contact Support about it, so that's what I'd suggest for you.
I deleted the file whose file extension indicated it was the supposed saved NameMapping data. Maybe works. I am awaiting a repeat of the symptom (or lack thereof) before determining if that is the "solution".
What I think I am seeing is this flow:
Something causes a name mapping unchanged stuff file (I wish I had noted the name and extension, but I did not).
You open TC and are prompted if you want to recover.
You say yes. <--- At this point the file should be removed. It is not. So you are forever in a weird Name Mapping state,
Not exactly scientific, but this is what I think I have observed. This strikes me as a defect.
Few days ago i had the same problem. I resolved it by deleting the "unsaved changes" name mapping file from directory:
Did you try to delete it before open TC?
